Publisher's Summary

The new Detective Inspector Hardcastle mystery - When the body of actress Victoria Hart is found in the early hours of Christmas Day, Hardcastle and Marriotts investigations lead them to the Beaux Belles revue, where a scantily clad Victoria persuaded young men to enlist with the promise of a kiss. It seems the alluring actress had many admirers, and when the recruiting sergeant is found dead, a link to the army can no longer be ignored....


Audible Editor Reviews

David Thorpe’s silky smooth British lilt adds a sense of authenticity to Graham Ison’s fifth Inspector Hardcastle mystery, which transports the listener to 1914 England as the titular detective and his beleaguered partner, Marriott, unexpectedly become mired in a web of military intrigue as they investigate the mysterious death of a seductive Beaux Hall revue performer.
Thorpe brilliantly captures Hardcastle's trademark surliness as well as his and Marriott’s witty, rapid-fire exchanges in this distinctively British throwback mystery.
